American Porcupine

About American Porcupine

American porcupines are very good at climbing trees. They climb high above the ground to find buds and bark to eat. Their quills are only 3 inches (8cm) long, but they have over 30,000 of them mixed along with their hair. Their quills are barbed which makes them harder to remove from skin of those unfortunate enough to have been stuck by them.
